After announcing plans for three more DLC packs for Fallout 4 at this year’s E3 event, the first of which has already been released, Bethesda is now preparing to show off the second of these new add-ons with a special livestream later this week. The developer announced today on Twitter that they will be giving players an early look at the upcoming Vault-Tec DLC on Tuesday via their official Twitch channel.

Similar to the popular Fallout Shelter mobile app, users will be able to become the overseer of their own Vault within Fallout 4. With the Vault-Tec DLC, fans will be able to build and customize one of the franchise’s iconic underground dwellings. Gamers will have full control over how they choose to run their vault and can even conduct classic Fallout-style experiments on the many NPC survivors who call the Vault home.
“Build a brighter future underground with the all-new Vault-Tec Workshop. Create a massive Vault and attract new Dwellers using pre-war industrial kits complete with retro-nostalgic furniture, lighting, and art. And like every good Overseer, run Vault-Tec approved experiments on your Dwellers to learn what makes an ideal citizen. Vault-Tec has given you the tools, the rest is up to you!”
Bethesda didn’t provide an exact start time for when the livestream will actually begin on Tuesday, nor did the developer specify how long it will last, so fans will have to stay tuned to the team’s official social channels for further details. The Vault-Tec DLC, which will be the fifth add-on release for Fallout 4, is expected to launch later this month.
When the Season Pass was first announced for Fallout 4, Bethesda had originally only intended on releasing three DLC packs for the game. However, the developer later revealed that they would be expanding their post-launch commitment to Fallout 4 by creating a total of six different add-ons for the popular post-apocalyptic title. These additional DLC plans led to a price increase for the Fallout 4 Season Pass. Thankfully, those who had already purchased the bundle were grandfathered into the original cheaper price for the Season Pass.
Having just released the third add-on for Fallout 4 the month before, Bethesda revealed all three of the title’s remaining DLC packs at E3. With the Contraptions Workshop DLC out now across all platforms, fans are now awaiting the launch of the Vault-Tec add-on in the coming weeks. The sixth Fallout 4 DLC, titled “Nuka-World” after an amusement park inspired by the setting’s fictional soft drink, will be the final add-on for the game when it is released in August.
While Bethesda works to complete the last two DLC packs for Fallout 4, the developer is also still busy trying to bring mod support to all platforms. With player-created mods currently available on the PC and Xbox One editions of the game, PlayStation 4 owners are still waiting for their chance to try out user-generated content. Fallout 4 mod support was originally scheduled to launch on the PS4 in June but was delayed.
As the Inquisitr reported late last month, Bethesda was still working with Sony in the hopes of ironing out some of the issues they were having with getting mods on the PlayStation 4. One of the bigger problems at the time was the fact that Fallout 4 mods on the PS4 have a much smaller size limitation when compared to those on the Xbox One. However, Bethesda still plans on launching mod support on the PlayStation 4 soon and expects to conduct a closed beta test in the near future.
